Healthy community design advocates work to link the fields of health and planning to ensure that those designing the built environment consistently consider health outcomes and those seeking to improve public health consider the physical environment. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control describes healthy communities design in more detail on their website at https://www.cdc.gov/healthyplaces/about.htm.
